The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
The Lord is our shephed. We shall not want.
In pastures green, we rest secure. Our shepherd leads us forth.
By still waters, we rest secure. Our shepherd brings us abundant life.
Go with the blessings of our shepherd. The blessing of God, Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, be with us all, this day and evermore. Amen
Hymn: In God Alone (Taize)
In God alone my soul can find rest and peace, in God my peace and joy.
Only in God my soul can find its rest, find its rest and peace.
